BlizzCon Not Cancelled (Yet), World of Warcraft Shadowlands Prequel Book Receives Cover

Novel due out July 14

By Poorna Shankar on April 10, 2020 | News | 0

In a brace of World of Warcraft-related news, BlizzCon isn’t cancelled just yet, and the Shadowlands prequel novel receives a cover.

The novel is called  Shadows Rising, the cover which was revealed by Blizzard Entertainment and Penguin Random House today. According to the accompanying press release, Shadows Rising is the next epic tale in the World of Warcraft novel series and takes place during the aftermath of Sylvanas Windrunner’s betrayal of the Horde. The prequel novel releases on July 14, 2020, yet fans can pre-order now.

Here’s a snippet,

“The Horde is nothing!” With those infamous words, Sylvanas Windrunner betrayed and abandoned the Horde she vowed to serve. The Dark Lady and her forces now work in the shadows as both the Horde and Alliance, including her own sister, Alleria, race to uncover her next move. Struggling to shoulder the crushing weight of leadership, King Anduin entrusts the void elf and High Exarch Turalyon to uncover Sylvanas’s whereabouts.

In BlizzCon news, Blizzard didn’t outright cancel the event, but maintain that they don’t yet know for certain whether or not the event will go forth,

“While we’re all hopeful things will look better later in the year, the bottom line is that at this point it’s too early to know whether BlizzCon 2020 will be feasible. The health of our community, employees, and everyone who helps with the show is our top consideration. It might be a few months before we know for certain if or how we’ll proceed, but as soon as we have a meaningful update, we’ll share it.”
